Identification Notes:

Cantharellula umbonata has the aspect of a slender clitocybe. The cap is grayish, minutely tomentose, and radially wrinkled with a small central papilla. The stipe is minutely tomentose, and similar in color to the cap. The gills are decurrent, forked, and whitish. The gills and flesh turn reddish to reddish brown when bruised or in age. The spores are white and amyloid. Cantharellula umbonata is primarily a northern species and is not common in our area, compared to the Great Lakes region and elsewhere. It occurs in conifer forests on acidic soils and grows in association with Dicranum, Polytrichum, and other mosses.
